“We’ve been. We love it. So will you.”

Activities Abroad is the UK’s leading activity travel company. We have been in the family holiday business for nearly ten years and have accumulated an unparalleled level of experience. We offer more than just the usual family holiday experience; we have developed an extensive programme of overseas activity holidays in Finland, Sweden and Norway, featuring a wide range of activities. We offer experiences such as husky sledding, ice fishing, reindeer farms and safaris, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and many more.
Our trips are designed for families and single parent families of all abilities from absolute beginners to experienced enthusiasts. Wherever possible we use local suppliers for activities and accommodation on our active adventure holidays offering a more real and authentic experience.
We love what we do, we live and breathe it, eat and sleep it. We care about sending people on the very best experiences. We have visited every single one of our destinations and selected the best locations, trips and accommodations. We would never send anyone on a trip that we don’t love ourselves.
Activities Abroad also run alpine sports and multi-activity summer holidays for families.
